The three made a presentation at the American Vocational Association, the largest of its kind in America, on the effect the microprocessor is having on teaching electronics, and the changes in the training program required. "This is one of the greatest honors that has been paid to our department" said Don James, department head, who made the journey in company with Ralph Merrill and Chester A. Heath, both instructors. "It is a recognition by the American Vocational Association that our program of teaching electronics here at Utah Technical College is a successful one. We are very pleased by their invitation, and we are preparing a presentation on the micro Coeds Cautioned Against Rapists Tactics A man posing as a security officer or policeman, has allegedly raped 18 young women in the Utah Valley area. According to police sorces, the man approaches the young women and tells them he is a police officer doing FINAL EXAMINATION SCHEDULE INSTRUCTIONS: Read across to the day(s) of your class, then read down and find the starting time of that class. This is your FINAL EXAM day and time. Students having more than two exams on one day, may request a rescheduling of the third exam at a different time. See your instructor to make this arrangement.

Mr. James, who started the department of electronic technology at Utah Tech in 1946, said the big concern now in electronic instruction is the need for changing instructional programs to include the new training made necessary by the microprocessor which, he said, is having a tremendous impact on the electronics industry. "Even as the transistor revolutionized the industry when it was introduced, the microprocessor is bringing about its own revolution, the extent of which can only be surmised." He described the microprocessor as a unit about one sixteenth the size of a postage stamp but containing tens of thousands of transistors which can be used in multiple ways in industrial products and consumer goods. It can be put into a sewing machine and allow the operator to merely push a certain button for a certain kind of stitch or to make a certain kind of buttonhole. It undercover work, and they are needed to help in sur-vclance. He also shows the young ladies a badge. His format includes driving them to an abandoned shack or barn, and performing sexual acts with them. Many of these will be the last week of fall, EXAM WEEK at their regularly scheduled class time. can navigate an airplane, also electronically adjust fuel-air mixtures for its engine and automatically adjusting to various elevations as they are encountered. The microprocessor can do the same for auto engines, thereby reducing polution. It can control a microwave oven so a button can be pushed for cooking a roast a certain way, another for turning it off when done, and keeping it warm for an hour, or whatever, afterward. These are but a few of the hundreds of uses for control to which microprocessors are being put. "The Electronic Technology Department of Utah Technical College has been teaching microprocessors and their applications for more than three years," said Mr. James, "and it is hoped our presentation at the Dallas AVA Convention, . scheduled Dec. 1-6, will help other schools get started, or improve their instruction in microprocessors. We are certain they will enjoy and profit from ourpresentation." assaults have occured in the vicinity of the University Mall. The man is described as short and stocky with medium brown hair.
